Knowing whether your plants are absorbing the nutrients you’re feeding them is important information in the heat of the season.

Tissue sampling is an additional tool you and your Superior Ag Agronomist can use to create an in-season nutrient game plan. It enables you to have better conversations about the nutritional status of your crops and to explore what could be done differently to help optimize your yield and ROI potential.

Get more out of tissue testing

Many local farmers have been using NutriSolutions® tissue sampling for years. The farmer’s utilizing this information are always looking for ways to take their crops to the next level.

In fact, in 2018, the use of NutriSolutions increase 40.5 percent. Why the increase? Crop advisors and agronomists are able to use this information to help farmers like you optimize use of on-farm technology in addition to enhancing management practices.

Build a nutrient database 

Soil sampling only measures nutrient levels within the ground, not what plants are actually taking in and are hungry for.

NutriSolutions tissue testing helps growers build a nutrient database they can use to gauge nutrient levels throughout their crop’s growth stages. It also allows them to identify hidden nutrient needs and to check variable-rate fertilizer prescriptions to assess the accuracy of application rates. It also detects nutrient deficiencies before yield is compromised and to allow growers to give their crops a boost they need.
